Children Law & Safety Political Queensland Government

Queensland's most vulnerable children are being put at risk under the watch of the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

The recent Queensland Budget revealed that the Department of Child Safety under Minister Di Farmer had failed to meet any of its targets on the number of children subject to protective orders in 2018-19.

But worse than that, the Department is now aiming for worse targets, meaning they now expect a higher rate of children to need protective orders under Labor's watch.

And it was further recently revealed that in South East Queensland only 27.9 per cent of investigations commenced within timeframe in the year ending September 2018.

This means that 2,834 (72.1 per cent) children were but at further unnecessary risk.

The Department of Child Safety is a department in crisis, and it is struggling under the weight of Minister Di Farmer's incompetence.

Minister Di Farmer is failing to take real action on child safety, and Queensland's most vulnerable are continuing to suffer as a result.

Shadow Minister for Child Safety, Youth, Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence
